In Northeast Ohio, we get some pretty crazy weather, especially in the winter. Fall is the perfect time to make sure that your vehicle is ready to make it through the winter.
Colder weather affects the way our cars run and can cause accidents, breakdowns, and repairs. The good thing is that these issues are preventable with proper maintenance and care. Below are five things you should check up on before the cold weather comes in…
When corrosion builds up in your cooling system, leaks and blockages may occur. Additives in the coolant will counteract this until depleted. A new coolant restores the ability to protect system components.
The exhaust system in your vehicle can safely remove hot exhaust, converts harmful emissions, and quiets engine noises. A leak in your exhaust can be dangerous as exhaust contains carbon monoxide and other toxins.
Having good tires with proper tread can help you have more control when driving in the winter. We do recommend snow tires; learn more here.
Having quality wipers that are not worn are especially important in the winter. They help improve visibility and prevent accidents. Learn more about windshield wipers here.
Your battery can drain much easier in the winter than in the warmer months. Nothing is worse than going to start your car in the morning or after getting gas and realizing your battery has died. Make sure your battery is going to last the winter before it's too late!
